To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, Jeremiah Reichard, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Safety-Razors, of which the following is a specification.
By means of this invention a safety-razor is capable of being satisfactorily set or adjusted and of being operated without scratching or inconvenience, as set forth in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which—
It will be noted that the spring
The adjusting-screws for the clamps being mounted in the back or body of the holder leave the top of the holder smooth or unstudded. Should the screws or studs project from the top of the clamps or holder, such screws would be apt to scratch or contact with the person while shaving, thus producing discomfort. By having the tops of the clamps smooth such discomfort is avoided.
The clamps could be mounted independently of one another, or said clamps could be connected or formed or made to act in unison or as one clamp by a connecting bar or strip, as shown in
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is—
1. In a safety-razor, the combination with a blade and a comb-plate on which the blade is arranged to rest, of spring-supported clamps arranged to clamp the ends of the blade to the comb-plate with a yielding pressure, means for adjusting the pressure of the clamps on the blade, and a spring arranged at the rear of the blade and operating to press the latter forward beneath the clamps to regulate the cutting action of the blade, substantially as described.
2. In a safety-razor, the combination with a blade and a comb-plate on which the blade rests, of spring-arms attached at their forward ends to the front portion of the comb-plate and carrying
3. In a safety-razor, the combination with a blade and a comb-plate on which the blade rests, of spring-arms attached at their forward ends to the front portion of the comb-plate and having their rear ends inclined from the blade-support,
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
